Question about larmor orbits.

  1. Jul 8, 2012 #1
    I was reading an article and it said if we have a charged gas of particles and it is in a uniform B field, then at any point there will be Larmor orbits. I mean this seems correct. So the charged particles would start a circular orbit. F=q(vxB) I just want to make sure this is correct.
